Arthrosis is a degenerative non-inflammatory condition of the joints especially involving the articular cartilages which eventually results in decreased joints movements and their structural damage.

It is less common in young adults and highly common in elderly people, especially the people above 70 years of age. However herbal remedies can also help in managing the condition and can save you from surgery. In this article, we will learn all about Arthrosis, its causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and management by herbal remedies offered by Planet Ayurveda.
The joints in the human body endure a lot of stress lifetime and while aging they can become weak and inflamed. There occur natural wear and tear of the tissues in the joints which when altering to a pathological condition can result in severe pain and limited movements of the joints. Arthrosis is a degenerative disease that is non-inflammatory in nature and causes chronic pain. This condition of joints is considered to be difficult to manage as per modern medicine and only its progression is said to be stopped.
While with the help of herbal medicines Arthrosis when diagnosed timely and treated with respective herbs, can be managed naturally. Any joint can be affected by Arthrosis, however, the most frequently affected ones are lower limb’s large joints. Initially, the symptoms are observed in the hip joint, descending to the knee joint, and then the ankle joint. Elbow and shoulder joints are rarely affected by Arthrosis.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
Arthrosis has symptoms of many other joints diseases and can be sometimes confused with similar other entities. However, some of the common signs and symptoms are seen in Arthrosis are:
- Joints pain, especially after exercise or physical exertion
- Pain at the beginning of the movement usually after a long rest
- Pain relieved after continuous movement
- Swollen and hot joints
- Redness of the area of joint affected
- Limited movement of the joints
There can be many reasons which initiated the development of Arthrosis, some the common one are:
- Injury to the particular joint
- Taking a diet full of processed food and lacking vitamins and other essential nutrients
- Excessive strain on the joints
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Rheumatic disease
- Obesity or excessive weight which causes strain on the joints
- Incorrect movements while playing a sport
Your doctor may suspect an Arthrosis after a complete physical examination and clinical history and suggests you go for X-rays or MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging). This will help in confirmation of the diagnosis.
Arthrosis is necessary to be diagnosed early and treatment of arthrosis should be started rigorously as our body is not able to regenerate the worn-out cartilages at all. Hence, the treatment is mainly aimed at managing the condition and preventing the further progression of the disease. Late diagnosis leads to more degeneration of cartilages hence making the disease more difficult to treat. Treatment, in general, depends upon the condition of the patient and amount of cartilage damaged, which can be a general self-help measure, certain medications, physiotherapy, acupuncture, and at last surgery.
Along with these methods of treatment, Ayurveda can also help a lot in managing the disease and preventing surgery. In Ayurveda, natural herbs and therapies are used to treat the condition naturally, without harming any other part of the body. In Ayurveda, the disease is caused due to imbalance of tridoshas, i.e. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, and hence aim is to restore them.
